Is this a grinder pump with float switch? Or is it built into toilet sump?

First in either case if you can identify the capacitor, get one and replace it, they wear out over time anyway. If that fixes it, you are done the easy way.

Many of these type motors are throw aways, and finding the switch, let alone getting it apart and replacing it is more trouble than buying a new motor if available.

If you are plumbed in, and have no other choice but major construction to replace an up toilet, we can attempt a repair at our shop, if that is against the rules here, sorry, but I know what a complicated and near impossible fix this might be, sometimes the motors are riveted together, so if you need help and want to mail it to me for an estimate, we are happy to take a quick look.

I need the through bolts for the wet end of a emerson R63 mwena 4727 pump

I do not believe that thru bolts have a part number? Which means, they are something you can not purchase separately?
Try an electric motor shop in your area. They may have some junk motors laying around?
Try a pool and spa repair service company in your area, they too may have junk motors laying around, that they can remove the thru bolts from. I know I have many of them in my junk pile.
And by the way... Emerson does not make a Pump! They just manufacture the Motor as a third party vendor to a pump manufacturer. To know the type of thru bolt, we will need the name and model of the PUMP.

Zoeller m267-f pump has power going to the motor but will nut run

Does it have a float switch? Does the motor run when you lift the float switch? If not... then the motor's gone.

My Zoeller M57 pump has stopped working. It won't even turn there a reset switch or some other easy fix for this?

These Zoeller pumps are very good quality> I suspect that the float switch is not working, which is why the pump is not turning on.You may try giggling the float arm that is attached to the switch. You can also try spraying some WD 40 into the switch where the arm enters. Zoeller does have replacement parts for their pumps. Review their website for your pump parts.

Emerson pool spa pump leaking water-how to change gaskets

Emerson is not the name of the pump, that's the brand of the motor attached to the wet end, and the two together make a pump.
1081/1563 only means that it meets the standards for a pool motor.
provide make and model, for your pump.

My Zoeller M53 Sump Pump Shorted out since the gasket seems to have partially rotted after 2 years Itis not used that often. I opened the wrong area of the pump and drained part of the oil. WHAT TYPe...

If your seal or gasket failed and water penetrated into the motor cabinet how certain are you that whatever you have done has actually remedied the underlying issue of the pump being grounded?

A new M53 is ~$125 - $150 and the oil is not something you can walk into the hardware store and pick up off the shelf. I'd want to be certain you have fixed the ground first. Having worked on these in the past it is unlikely you are going to fix anything wrong with the winding, especially for less than a new unit.

If all is OK and the oil is all you need ask around at local pump repair shops for 10 or 20 weight non-detergent pump oil...they should know what you want and if they sell it, you should be all set. As for the amount, pour it in slowly until you see the winding is fully submerged. You need to leave room at the top to allow for thermal expansion of the oil.

Hello, I am looking for any information on the Zoeller BE284. I am trying to find the cause of problem. When I turn on the power, the pump is not working.

You don't say much about the trouble. Is the motor running? Is it air bound? 220 volts??

I suggest you contact the manufacturer

I wish you had posted additional details in your question.

Thank you for considering

What is the maintenance for a zoeller extractor pump?Should it be serviced so there won't be a problem?

There really is no maintenance for a Zoeller submersible pump. When these fail it is typically the switch or the motor itself. If it is a smaller unit 1/2HP to 10HP I consider the pump trash if it is the motor that does fail. Yes they may be rebuilt but when compared to the cost of a replacement it can be hard to justify, especially when a new unit will give you a warranty.
I hope this may have helped,
